 DMU

3rd November 1978

Set: 714

Back in the days of decent trains and station staff, a diagram took these wonderful Trans-Pennine units from Hull to Beverley and back meaning I got to travel to and from work in style. E52094 brings up the rear of the 16:41 Hull - Beverley on 3rd November 1978. Fred the Station Attendant who worked there for many years looks on to make sure I'm not up to no good! Syd Young.


 DMU

12th July 1979

A Cravens Class 105 2-car set with E56142 leading arrives at Cottingham with an evening service from Beverley to Hull on 12th July 1979. At this date Northgate crossing box still controlled the semaphore signals and the wooden gates, together with the crossover and ground discs shown in the photograph. All have been consigned to history along with the 105s. Syd Young.


 DMU

26th April 1983

The 16:25 Hull - Bridlington service leaves Cottingham on 26th April 1983. E56369 is the leading unit of a pair of two-car Class 101s. The vehicles on the right are parked on the site of the former goods yard. Fortunately the actual goods shed survives and is still in use with a local timber company. Syd Young.

A four-car Derby Lightweight set with E53646 leading arrives at Cottingham with a service from Bridlington - Hull on 25th July 1983. Syd Young.


 DMU

29th July 1983

A Class 101 2-car set with E54383 leading (recently renumbered from E56383) waits under the NER footbridge at Cottingham with a service from Bridlington to Hull on 29th July 1983. On the left, a Class 108 set departs for Beverley. Cottingham station has changed little since this photo was taken; the old footbridge still creaks under the weight of passing feet, but the 1st generation DMUs which served the line for 30-odd years are long gone. Syd Young.


 DMU

26th August 1983

A pair of Metro-Cammell 2-car sets with E56373 leading arrives at Cottingham on 26th August 1983 with a Bridlington - Hull service. Semaphores, signalboxes and crossing gates are all still in attendance. Syd Young.

18th October 1983

A Class 108 2-car set with recently-renumbered 53599 bringing up the rear trundles away from Cottingham on a Hull - Scarborough service on 18th October 1983. The semaphores went the following year and the box lingered on until 1987. The latter is now preserved in the Hull Streetlife Museum. Syd Young.

 DMU

19th October 1983

A Beverley - Hull train with E56052 leading passes the wooden crossing box at Thwaite Street in Cottingham on 19th October 1983. Although I lived most of my life in the village, this is the only photograph I have of the box which was demolished when control of the signalling and crossings was transferred to Hull. Syd Young.
